Sony quietly releases a less noisy PS4 Pro

The latest tweak to the PlayStation 4 Pro makes the powerhouse console nearly as quiet as Sony was about sneaking the new model into stores. According to Eurogamer, the new CUH-7200 version of the PS4 Pro has reduced the video game console's noise output to 44 decibels from the 50 decibels featured in the launch version of the mid-generation console.

Digital Foundry notes that, aside from the volume dip and a new figure-eight power supply, little else has changed with the new PS4 Pro console.

"This is quietest, most discreet Pro yet, completely banishing the "jet engine" effect commonly associated with launch models", The Digital Foundry's Richard Leadbetter explains. There were even minor gains against the previous CUH-7100 revision.

A total of 27 people have so far been dismissed as potential jurors, out of almost 60 who have been questioned. The prosecution objected and the defense argued he should stay, but Cogan dismissed him.

Other than this change, the CUH-7200 version of the PS4 Pro is reportedly identical to the first version of the console. Normally, she'd be a big blob of light, but high dynamic range gives you details in moments of extreme brightness and extreme darkness.

Having your console whirring away is an unwelcome distraction and one that you'd rather avoid if you could.

Since then, Sony has quietly revved the PS4 Pro twice, but none of these releases have improved the performance or put the console on better footing against the Xbox One X. These are relatively minor tweaks which are less likely to influence anyone's decision to make the jump to a PS4 Pro.
